MongoDB and Google Megastore

TheRegister quoting Dwight Merriman, 10gen founder, in a post titled “MongoDB daddy: My baby beats Google BigTable”:

We read [Google’s Megastore research paper] and we were almost laughing at the similarities

I hope both the title and the quote are not really Dwight’s.

HP Mergers & Acquisitions: MongoDB Next?

M&A speculations are on:

HP would do well to position itself for the post-relational world by acquiring expertise for a next-generation database. 10gen has experience in developing, installing, and supporting the open source database MongoDB, which would position HP well as both a database software provider and as a cloud-based database services provider. HP desperately needs an enterprise database solution. Expect a move in 2011.

MongoDB, NoSQL, and Web Scale with 10gen CTO Eliot Horowitz

From thechangelog podcast:

  • MongoDB roadmap: MongoDB 2.0 will be focusing on concurrency, aggregation, online compaction, and TTL temporal collections
  • MongoDB single server durability as the most awaited feature of the recent MongoDB 1.8 release
  • MongoDB compared with Riak and CouchDB
  • MongoDB geo support

And it is cool that Eliot and 10gen think the Web Scale meme is all in good fun.

10Gen, MongoDB Producer, Raises $6.5 in Third Round of Financing

The announcement that 10gen, the company behind MongoDB, raised $6.5 was published on too many places , so I just wanted to drop a couple of comments:

  • when I read “market leader” I always ask myself two questions:
    • by what criteria is the company considered a market leader?. There are numerous way to rank companies in a market and it is essential to understand the criteria used to decide if one is or is not a leader
    • haven’t PR people learned over years that this sound like pure BS
  • funding in the NoSQL market seem to remain very low:
    • it might be that most of the companies in the NoSQL market are service oriented
    • it might just be that’s the standard funding for software companies
  • Sequoia Capital seems to have a track record in identifying successful companies

NoSQL Companies Make it To Top 50 Start-Ups To Watch

A couple of companies involved in the NoSQL market appear in the VentureWire’s list of ”Top 50 Start-Ups To Watch”:

  • 10Gen - Provides an open-source non-relational database called MongoDB.
  • Cloudera - Provides enterprise-level support to users of Apache Hadoop, the open source software that powers the data processing engines of many websites.
  • Datameer - Offers a data analytics platform built on Apache Hadoop that helps business users access, analyze and use massive amounts of data.
  • Membase - Develops software based on open-source program Memcached designed for storing data behind interactive web applications.
  • Schooner Information Technology - Develops data-access application appliances for information-intensive Web 2.0 and cloud computing datacenters.

There are a couple more that are missing… but I’m not a VC.

Update: It looks like I’ve missed Relaxed Couchio CouchOne from the list (nb: wondering how old this list is!!!). Thanks to Ishaan for pointing that out:

Relaxed Couchio CouchOne: Developing an open source indexable document database designed for the reporting and storage of large amounts of semi-structured, document oriented data.
